We were two couples and stayed in the apartment of Villa Gallante. Mike, our host, was friendly and more than helpful - wine reviews, local places of merit and interest, good restaurants, and occasional, but vital, technical help with phone and computer all were part of the value we received. The views from terrace are stunning; breakfast, and evening drinks... More

Taormina lived up to expectations and Villa Gallante suited our modest accommodation budget. The location was fine - a little out of town but in fact an enjoyable non-touristy experience. The recommended restaurants on 'our' side of town couldn't be beaten. Best of all was the wonderful terrace and amazing view. I needed to do a little dusting when I... More

The house at one of the peaks of Taormina, with amazing view. The yard with delicate arty details, 2 rooms and one apartment, one of them only not oriented towards the sea, but with the privacy. Nice custom of putting breakfast on the terrace table in the morning, discretely. Cleaning service every day though towels could be changed more often.... More

View from patio is unrivaled -- majestic and beautiful. Owner helpful with restaurant reviews and directions for public transportation. However, bed was uncomfortable, towels were stale-smelling and owner wouldn't refresh ("I only change towels every 4 days, due to shortage of towels and water."); shower stall corners covered in black and orange mildew; shower rod mysteriously fell down with no...

If you want a place where you can relax and take in the glorious Ionian Sea over a glass of wine, look no further. This is a very beautifully appointed inn. The owners are American expats who have a wealth of information about restaurants, beaches, and places of cultural interest. Our first night, we arrived close to midnight due to... More

We spent first night in the Terrace Room which we found a little small but were then able to stay in the Sea View Room which was much better. Mike and Rose are very friendly and full of local information, The view from the terrace to the sea was stunning and being able to park safely outside a real bonus... More

Villa Galante is beautiful, a small bed and breakfast that is run superbly by the warmest hosts: Mike and Rose. We ummed and ahhed about where to stay and looked on Tripadvisor and i'm very glad we stayed where we did. It is a walk into town but after a big meal the walk back was probably just what we... More

It was good fortune that took me to Villa Galante! After climbing the steps from the street I turned to see one of the most beautiful panormas in all my experience on 5 continents. My hosts were engaging, informative, gracious and hospitable. The room was well-appointed and clean. The other guests were friendly but not intrusive. I will be back!

Wonderful stay at Villa Galante in Taormina. Great view with a knowedgable host. Mike's recomendations for dining, wine and travels- including bike rides- were always right on. We would love to visit again.

Villa Galante is located a bit outside of the main tourist area of Taormina which allows for a perfect feeling of tranquility the minute you arrive! The views from the patios are amazing! The house is very well maintained by the owner, Mike and his wife. They have done such a great job making the entire area an escape with... More
